It’s a boy!

On April 29th, I had a group of girls over to watch the Royal Wedding; one friend brought professionally made cake pops. My pregnant “sister” (she is actually my sister-in-law’s sister) loved the treats so much that I decided then and there that I would make a batch for her when her baby arrived. The cake pops were also perfect for dessert for my wine club theme, On A Stick.

Fast-forward exactly two months to June 29th; a beautiful baby boy was born! I decorated the cake pops in both pink and blue so I would be adequately prepared since the baby’s gender was unknown in advance.

The cake pops are so cute and make a fun and delicious treat!

What You Need

  • 1 box of cake mix, any flavor you prefer (I made a batch of chocolate and Funfetti)

  • 1 container of frosting, any flavor you prefer to go with cake flavor

  • 1 package of chocolate bark or any quick drying dipping chocolate (I used milk and white chocolate)
1 package of lollipop sticks (purchased at Michael's)

  • Sprinkles or other decorating toppings, if you desire

  • Wax paper

  • Styrofoam block for drying

What To Do

  1. Bake the cake according to the directions on the box.
Let the cake cool completely.
  2. Once the cake has cooled, transfer the cake to a bowl and break it into pieces. Continue breaking the cake into pieces until it turns into crumbs.
  3. Add the container of frosting to the cake mix. I did not use the entire container of the frosting, but almost all.
Mix the frosting into the cake mix until it is uniformly combined. I found it easiest to use my hands in the mixing process.
  4. Once the frosting is completely mixed, roll the cake into little balls, about 1 to 1½ inch in size.
  5. Place the balls on a cookie sheet or plate lined with wax paper.

  6. Once all the cake has been formed into balls, place them in the freezer for 1 hour.

  7. When the cake balls have almost hardened, begin melting the chocolate according to the package. I melted mine in the microwave, but on a stove would be even better.

  8. When the chocolate has melted, pull the cake balls out of the freezer.
Dip the end of the lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and then place it in the flat side of the ball, and then dip in the chocolate. Carefully shake off the excess chocolate.
  9. - Before the chocolate dries, quickly sprinkle the ball with the sugar or decorative topping.
  10. - Place the cake pop upright in styrofoam to dry or carefully lay on wax paper. I prefer the styrofoam so the chocolate does not smear.

  11. Continue dipping the cake until all cake pops are made.

  12. If you want to give the cake pops as a gift or bring them to a party, purchase lollipop wrappers and twist ties and package them individually.
